Independent Spirit Awards


In a nod to the enduring power of filming in black and white, the 2006 Independent Spirit Award for best cinematography went to Robert Elswit for capturing the crisp world of television news in the 1950s in Good Night, and Good Luck.Since cinematography is the only craft category honored by Film Independent, whose awards celebrate distinctive lower-budget movies, Elswit used his acceptance speech at the March 4 ceremony in Santa Monica to acknowledge the contributions of his below-the-line collaborators.“This really honors all their work,” said Elswit, citing Jim Bissell, the film’s production designer, art director Christa Munro, set decorator Jan Pascale, costume designer Louise Frogley and film editor Stephen Mirrione.Other best cinematography nominees in the competition included John Foster, Keane; Adam Kimmel, Capote; Chris Menges, The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada; and Harris Savides, Last Days.
